Here is what the DVDs will look like!
Here are some concept art pieces for the posters. Originally I thought that the movie poster should have a feel that was less than serious. I designed both of these pieces before it was evident that the film would be much more somber and dark. These designs were not only meant to be colored in […]
Here is the Newest Poster! Let me know what you think of it. The DVD jacket is on its way.
When I record sound effects, rather than creating multiple takes for a single sound source (ie, hitting a pizza pan), I tend to continue the recording and try multiple permutations of sound levels, microphone distances and, in the case of something like a pizza pan, velocities. By recording these permutations in one track you save […]
Even though the official class is gone, I still often bring up how awesome it was to my friends. I miss the people I grew close to over the several days we shot. Since moving to Canada, I found it hard to meet people in classes when everyone was so quiet and kept to themselves, […]

So, Lachlan and I have been logging insane hours trying to piece (by piece) together How Socrates Bought the Farm now that we’re in the post production editing phase of things. You think when faced with doing a rough cut, it’d be pretty straight forward. Wrong! First we had to sync the footage together with […]
Now that the production of How Socrates Bought the Farm is slowly coming to an end I’ve realized how close of a class we have become. I am going into my 4th year at the University of Victoria and I can honestly say I have never been apart of a class quite like this. I […]
